Built to order for Dr. Gustavus Latham of Richard Thomas & Baldwins LTD. Having placed their order for the newly designed Continental by Park Ward at the October 1959 Earls Court Motorshow, where BC10AR (factory car) made its official unveiling for the first time. This example was built to that exact same colour combination of Sand and Beige.

Fast forward the decades to 2012 the car was acquired by its most recent of owners who commissioned award winning marque experts Michael Hibbard Motor Engineers to carry out a body off, nut and bolt restoration. There had been no shortcuts through this process and the car before you can only be described as being better than the day it left the factory line in 1960 - photographs do the car no justice this is how good this example is.

Upon completion the next stop was for the car to attend the largest ever gathering of Bentley Motorcars in history to mark the 100th anniversary of WO Bentley. This event was held at Blenheim Palace - entered into CLASS E it went on to win its class at this magnificent event - which will not happen again.

To replicate these works carried out to BC75 the cost of restoration alone would be north of £350,000 making this an incredible opportunity. Having covered just over 2,000 miles since completion and stored correctly. The car is read for immediate inspection and final delivery.
